    Video: Xcar puts you behind the wheel of the BAC Mono
    1400626860

    In terms of extreme driving experiences, we imagine a single-seat racecar is the epitome. Seeing as how most of us lack the talent or the ridiculous financial backing and sponsorships to secure a race seat, though, it seems unlikely we'll ever fully realize what the single-seat experience is ...

    1374676200

    Last month, RSR Nürburgring put the Queen of the Nürburgring, Sabine Schmitz, up against Ron Simons, an instructor at the Ring (which we suppose makes him one of Sabine's subjects). In that video, the two tangled on the Ring, with the German in her personal Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the ...

    Official: Grid 2: Mono Edition is some kind of spendy video game
    1369659600

    For years now, video game makers (and their marketing teams, more than likely) have sought to amp up the excitement of their new releases with wild and lavish special edition packages.

    Video: BAC Mono slithers around in the wet with Chris Harris
    1343865540

    Chris Harris has gotten his hands on the BAC Mono on a closed track. With 280 horsepower and a curb weight of just 1,190 pounds (540 kg), the machine may very well be the king of the open-wheel, street-legal hooligans. With the track wet enough to boast plenty of standing water, Harris gets a ...

    We called the gloriously minimalist Ariel Atom "awesomeness that defies all classification." And that's just how we feel about the outside; Auto Shepherd stopped by Arizona distributor Sector 111 (which, incidentally, will also handle the outrageous BAC Mono) to pore over every detail under the ...

    BAC Mono single-seat road car is "fan-bleeding-tastic"
    1315782180

    Autocar's ex-racer scribe Steve Sutcliffe sat himself in the middle of the BAC Mono – which is the only place to sit, actually – and came away with a helmet full of glee. The £79,950 ($108,800 CAD with exchange rates) single-seater apparently drives just like an F3 car, an ...
